Janssen works with Modis to implement healthcare data platform

Client core business

Janssen is a Belgium-based pharmaceutical company that develops treatments for serious disorders and complex medical challenges such as cancer, hepatitis, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, arthritis, dementia and more.

How Modis added value

Our client asked us to handle project management for the European Medical Information Framework (EMIF), a public-private partnership (IMI 1) running from January 2013 to June 2018. This multi-stakeholder project involved three research tracks, 57 partners and was worth 56 million euros.

The EMIF platform makes healthcare data accessible to researchers in Europe, accelerating research projects involving biomarker development. Our team led the project management office, supported project communication and dissemination, established best practices, coordinated and set up sustainability efforts and organized key consortium meetings.
